The Other Side: Philadelphia 76ers

Eddie Jordan's current team has a better record than his former team, but that doesn't mean all is well for him in Philadelphia. The 76ers (5-8) have lost their last two games in a row as Jordan returns to Verizon Center for the first time since the Wizards fired him. Here's what else you need to know about the 76ers before the game tonight:

1. Jordan has already called out his team for being soft twice this month. But it is obvious that he is still trying to learn his team. And, the 76ers are still learning the complicated Princeton offense.

2. Elton Brand, the 76ers' $80 million dollar man, is averaging 12.1 points and 6.5 rebounds and Jordan recently considering benching him, thinking that Brand could no longer play major minutes. But in the past three games, Brand has been on the comeback trail. He is averaging 19.7 points, 10.3 rebounds and 3.7 blocks in 38.3 minutes.

3. Andre Iguodala is being groomed to be a star, but he has struggled in the past two losses to Memphis and Cleveland. He averaged just 13.5 points -- which is down from his season average of 18.2 points -- and shot 11 of 39 from the floor.

''They've got a ton of talent, and a ton of experience,'' he said. "That's a formidable team, and they should be very good. I don't know what their problem is." - Eddie Jordan

Ha! Nice back-handed compliment, Eddie...

So this is how it ends for Mr. Pollin as he died today. A team bickering over egos and battling over playing time while he was battling for his life. Best regards to the Pollin family.

rest in peace to abe polin. the "cheap abe" commentary will be laid to rest as well. he was a good man and a decent owner. the dc area will definitely miss one of its most beloved philanthopists.

This is horrible - just heard them ont he sports station talking about it. Mr. Pollin, as a Washingtonian, thank you for all you have done for this city.
